Alan (and Mike seconding the idea) I wanted to thank you guys for suggesting this guide. I will be reading it tonight.
The guide arrived today in the mail and I felt like Navin R Johnson (Steve Martin's character in The Jerk) The new phone book is here! It is going to be very helpful to this neophyte.
I bought it on eBay from The Book Angler Click Here. Not only did I get the book quickly, it was in excellent shape and he sent along a personalized thank you postcard (a Badger Creek Tragopan fly gracing the cover). I will post a picture of it tomorrow.
In the Acknowledgments, the author recognizes Jim Schollmeyer for setting the standard with Hatch Guide for Western Streams (eBay). He has a lot of books on tying flies too (eBay).
